Wetlands are one of the most productive ecosystems on Earth. In addition to providing a habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals, wetlands protect inland ecosystems and resources. Wetlands act as a natural filter as plants soak up pollutants from the water. Along a river or ocean shore, wetlands absorb the impact of a storm surge or a river flood by providing a break over which the water loses its destructive energy...

*Description*: HH 32 is an excellent example of a "Herbig-Haro object," which is formed when young stars eject jets of material back into interstellar space. This object, about 1,000 light-years from Earth, is somewhat older than Hubble's variable nebula, and the wind from the bright central star has already cleared much of the dust out of the central region, thus exposing the star to direct view. Many young stars, like the central object in HH 32, are surrounded by disks of gas and dust that fo...

[image]Nicaragua's San Cristobal Erupts: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
A small plume of steam and possibly ash was wafting westward from the San Cristobal Volcano in northwestern Nicaragua (bottom right quadrant) on December 16, 2002. At the time this modis.gsfc.nasa.gov Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image was acquired by the terra.nasa.gov/ Terra satellite, no detectable heat signature was present at the volcano, but a few fires were detected and are marked with red outlines...

[image]Pollution from Fires in Central America - Image courtesy the NCAR and University of Toronto
The widespread and intense biomass burning ocurring on the Yucatan Peninsula and other parts of Central America is producing high concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO) in the lower atmosphere, as shown in this image of observations by the Measurements of Pollution in The Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite. This false-color image shows the mixing ratios of CO at an altitude of about 3 km (700 hPa) averaged from April 25 to May 1, 2003...

[image]Fires in the Yucatan and Central America: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
On April 4, 2006, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer modis.gsfc.nasa.gov (MODIS) on NASA's terra.nasa.gov Terra satellite captured this image showing numerous fires (marked in red) burning across the Yucatan Peninsula (top center), and the Central American countries to the south: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Although MODIS cannot tell the cause of fires, April is one of the dry-season months in the area, and it is possible that the fires are a mixture of intent...
